hiking the AT

POST #    239

this afternoon, my dad and i met up with my friend justin to hike the part of the appalachian trail called lehigh gap, which is about a mile long. armed with my bottle of water, sunscreen, camera, iPod, and trusty in-N-out burger hat, we climbed to the top in about 45 minutes. there were parts that were flat and parts that were challenging which justin said are probably about a 4 rating. for those parts, we grabbed a hold of some rocks and made our way up, rock by rock. once atop the mountain, we had a clear view of the surrounding area and plenty of sun exposure. after spending 20 minutes on top of the lehigh gap re-hydrating ourselves and enjoying some skittles, we cautiously made our way down, which was much harder than the climb up. overall, it wasn't too difficult of a trail, despite me being out of shape, but it was still challenging, and a good time.

pictures tomorrow.

yeah, it wasn't the tallest or longest trail ever, but it was nice to get out of the city and do something active.
